Over the summer, St. Joseph’s Academy senior Kate B. attended the National Student Leadership Conference on Forensic Science at American University in Washington, D.C. 

This program immerses student teams in the challenges of crime scene investigation by having participants solve a realistic crime. Students used DNA, blood spatter, footwear and tire tread analysis techniques, and fingerprinting to solve a crime. Students in the program had the opportunity to meet leading forensic scientists from the FBI, NCIS and other law enforcement organizations.
